What is Go Parks?

Go Parks is a project giving the residents of Coventry new and exciting ways to use parks and green spaces in the city. Go Parks will bring everything from sport and physical activity to wellbeing and culture elements into your local park.

With an increasing number of people now using parks and greenspaces for activity as a result of COVID-19, we’re promoting ways to be active in parks that are fun, simple and safe.

Go Parks: Active Schools Challenge

The Go Parks: Active Schools Challenge is returning with a culture special!

To celebrate Coventry’s UK City of Culture 2021 status, the Challenge will this time have a cultural twist. Not only will schools be getting active by using parks in the city, but also by taking part in, and visiting, cultural activities and venues.

This time all entrants are required to become a Go CV member if they are not already in order to enter and vote for their local school.

The Challenge will start on 1 October, for a whole month full of cultural fun, flash challenges and physical activity. Activities, parks and cultural venues will all be announced soon.

Get prepared and become a Go CV member today.

Stay up-to-date with Go Parks: Active Schools Challenge news by following the Coventry Sport Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
